Things that FRIENDS taught me about skiing

I don’t watch much TV, but when I do, there are a few shows that I cannot not watch. If I’m scrolling through the channels and I come across one of the following (Sex and the City, Say Yes to the Dress, Gilmore Girls), I have no choice but to watch them, no matter what else may lie down that endless line of green and blue squares.

Unless what lies down there is FRIENDS, in which case, all bets are off, we’re on the couch until the end of whatever three hour syndication block has started.

Last month marked 20 years since the show has been on air, that’s 20 years of Ross-getting-divorced-jokes. What’s more, for me, that’s 10 years of me, sitting on a hotel bed in West Yellowstone, glued to the screen for the Thanksgiving marathon. I know, you did it too.

So, without further ado, here it goes: The one where Annie lists the 20 things she learned from FRIENDS

1. When in doubt, sarcasm it out.

2. It’s ok to wear your new spandex before race season.

By the way, thank you for all of the votes on what I should do if I raise enough money to eat this year! Looks like I might just be making a traveling dancing (twerk) video. But it will take two to tango. Details to come next week.

6. In the Nordic dating world, things get weird.

7. Don’t eat the wax. Even if you’re hungry and it’s organic (or high fluoro).

8. Coaches meetings

12. The Nordic world is very small. No, not that small.

13. The transition from college support to professional skiing can be shocking, but wonderful.

14. Don’t yell “track,” just pass the biddies!

15. Honesty is the best policy (re: cleaning skis, the extra interval, filling out your training log)

16. How to have a healthy competitive team environment

18. If you’re going to be a dork, freaking own it.

19. Race braids. That is all.

20. When your jobs a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s DOA (what is DOA?), It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear (stupid sprint hills), it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month or even your year…I probably won’t be there for you, but I bet your team will, like mine is for me. (suh cute!)
